NILGOSC supports the 2022 Global Investor Statement on Climate

Published on

NILGOSC is pleased to announce that it has signed the 2022 Global Investor Statement to Governments on the Climate Crisis, to urge global governments to raise their ambition on climate policy.

The annual Global Investor Statement to Governments on the Climate Crisis, coordinated by the Investor Agenda, brings together a regionally diverse body of global investors to urge governments to implement specific priority policy actions that will enable them to invest the trillions needed to respond to the climate crisis.

First launched in 2014, the statement has become a major tool for mobilising investor voices on climate policy action. The statement has grown in impact over the years, and is now supported by 733 signatories with assets under management of $52 trillion USD.

Ahead of the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) to be held in Egypt in November 2022, NILGOSC – alongside hundreds of investors from around the world – is calling on governments globally, to entrench five priority climate asks into their national legislation. NILGOSC believe that effective policies, in line with limiting global warming to no more than 1.5°C, are essential for accelerating and scaling up private capital flows needed for a climate resilient, net-zero transition.

The Global Investor Statement, which includes a full list of supporters can be found on The Investor Agenda website.
